DAB Radio

Im looking at changing my old radio with the switch over to digital next year. Can anyone recommend a decent dab radio thats got the digital reciever integrated in the unit including the bits like mp3 various outputs etc....

Ive already looked at these two, but cant find any others to compare etc..

JVC EXAD KD-LHX601
Blaupunkt Nashville DAB35

also could anyone tell me if its easy enough for me to change the radio myself.

Thanks

Re: DAB Radio

2 minutes to chage the stereo in the Sei.

As for built in DAB stereo, the 2 you've listed there are the best options.

Have you been down to Eurocar and see what they can offer?

Re: DAB Radio

I bought the latest JVC DAB jobbie for my brava. nice unit, simple to use etc.

Ull need a DAB ariel for it though. i think you can get convertors to go on ur normal ariel but I bought an ariel kit which stuck on the windscreen. a little black box that you tucked to a corner.

One problem I have though is that DAB is so overrated. on some stations the sound was worse. it would sound like you were streaming over the net at a lowbitrate... all distorted even with a full signal etc. plus when you loose signal it just cuts out and then switchs to FM which always has atleast some kind of signal.

DAB is a cool idea but its crap

Re: DAB Radio

DAB is just fine, but make sure you have a damn good aerial, preferably external.

FWIW I've had no poblem with a Sony CDX-DAB6650.
